Dang, Maxposure doesn't envy Florida. I guess Floridians failed then. I better inform the state of Florida on your opinions of it.

There is no station on S.Padre, so the island itself is probably 2-3F warmer.
I think the averages speak better then the lowest temp. And they are about the same in both Tampa and South Padre. SPI might be a little warmer because its an Island, but I can say the same for St Pete beach or Clearwater Beach. Just because Brownsville and SP are on a lower latitude doesn't mean much.

The only tropical places in the United States are the state of Hawaii and various US territories and commonwealths.

Durian, breadfruit, lipstick palms are what the tropics can grow. They are found in abundance and thriving.

Yeah Lipstick Palms are hard to grow outside of the Caribbean. But there are no US States in the Caribbean.
